    This is my first hatch out of an incubator. So pretty much i am scared out of my mind. Hoping i wont mess aything up. [​IMG] But i put them in only two days ago, and it seems like it has been weeks! Does it always seem to take this long. I let my hen hatch eggs last year and it was no big deal to me. Probably cause i wasnt the one doing it. [​IMG] But i am siting here just waiting. Bitting my nails, we need a smilly that is biting its nails. Haha! [​IMG] I would be using it all the time. Hey did anyone else set eggs the 20th? You could be my hatching buddy! [​IMG]

    This is my first hatch too, and I felt the same way last week. On day 9 when I candeled and saw all those embryos it seemed not such a long wait.
    Now I am half way through!!

    Yay! I cant wait till the day i candle and can see which are fertile and which arent. My rooster is very good at fertilizing. Haha! So I am hoping for 100% hatch on my OEGB! I also have two mutts in there but im not sure about those. They are from my americaunas, mixed with my only roo and BO, and i have never seen my rooster "with" them. LOL! [​IMG] What kind of birds are you hatching?
